This breaded tenderloin rekindles memories of a sandwich shop in my Ohio hometown. Even though I've moved away, I'm happy to say my family can still enjoy them thanks to this recipe. —Erin Fitch, Sherrills Ford, North Carolina

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

Nutritional Facts

1 sandwich: 289 calories, 11g fat (2g saturated fat), 43mg cholesterol, 506mg sodium, 29g carbohydrate (3g sugars, 1g fiber), 17g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 starch, 2 lean meat, 1-1/2 fat.


  1. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, salt and pepper. Place egg and the combined bread crumbs in two separate shallow bowls.
  2. Cut tenderloin crosswise into four slices; pound each with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Dip in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg, then in crumb mixture, patting to help adhere.
  3. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook pork 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from pan; drain on paper towels. Serve in buns, with toppings as desired. Yield: 4 servings.
Keep carbs to about 10g per serving by skipping the bun and serving the pork on grilled portobello mushrooms or eggplant slices.

"This is my first ever recipe review. This recipe had only two reviews & both are 5-star. I like to try recipes with more ratings but I had leftover tenderloin I wanted to use so I thought I'd try it. I'm so glad I did. I made it exactly as written and my husband and I both loved it. It's a definite keeper - quick & very tasty! It now has three 5-star reviews! Thank you Erin Fitch!"

"Absolutely delicious! I wouldn't change a thing. This comes together quickly, and appealed to both my little ones. The recipe is also easy to scale upward for more people. My husband enjoyed the leftovers for lunch the next day too"
